A Japanese film crew interviewed visitors to the Trinity Site during Saturday’s open house. Japan Broadcasting Company producer Yuichiro Ando said the interviews were for a documentary for Japanese television. When Mountain Mail reporter John Larson asked the crew for an interview for the newspaper, Ando instead asked Larson for an on-camera interview. The open house attracted 3,735 visitors in the six hours it was open to the public Saturday. A spokesperson at White Sands Missile Range said the attendance was about 300 more than last October’s open house. The site of history’s first nuclear explosion is open to the public only two days each year.
